Wood County prostitution sting cracks down on trafficking

WOOD COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Wood County Sheriff's Office does these prostitution stings on a regular basis, and this time around they made several arrests, including one that was a little unusual.

The Wood County Sheriff says they made about 12 to 13 arrests this weekend. One of them being a 37-year-old woman from Toledo who had her 12-year-old child in the car. 

Sheriff Mark Waslyshyn says she planned to leave the child in the car and admitted that she has left her child in some dangerous situations before. 

"It's not common," said Wasylyshyn. "But we have had children involved, and that's really scary, and unfortunate, when that happens."

The woman will face a child endangerment charge in addition to soliciting prostitution.
